to see you this morning. >> mitt romney fared much better in michigan, emerging the clear winner in that state's straw poll. >> when you look around this republican field, apart from romney, who is there that you could put forward as a credible candidate that would have a chance of winning? >> let's bring in lenny curry, chairman of the republican party of florida. lenny, before saturday's straw poll, you said one of the most important things that voters in florida would consider was electability. how electable is herman cain? uh-oh. lenny, do we have you there? can you hear me okay? lenny? >> yeah, i got you now. >> let me just re-ask that question. before the straw poll on saturday, you said that one of the most important things that florida voters would be considering was electability. how electable is herman cain? >> florida is a representative sample of the gop electorate in florida is representative of what you see across the country. so if a candidate can win florida in our primary, they are arguably ee -- will be electable and competitive in a general election. and herman
. michigan being one of them. i mean, governor romney is one of his home state, place where his dad was governor, three-term governor, place where he has a really great connection to. if we can put a couple of those states like michigan, wisconsin, put indiana back into play, that's going to make the map a very, very difficult for this white house. >> when it comes to the primary campaign, though, there's been some speculation about how serious you guys are going to compete in iowa. how serious you're going to compete in iowa. >> we're going to play in iowa. the governor will be back there several times campaigning. there will be debates in iowa where we'll be competing in all those debates. this race is -- one thing we've seen, it is a very fluid race and we've seen numbers bouncing around all over the place. we're going to be available and ready to campaign at any state and in order to get the nomination. >> you brought up the general election. i want to play this ad that you guys have out on perry this morning and ask you about it on the other side. here it is. >> who supports go
's already another case pending in the supreme court. that is one that came out of michigan, the sixth circuit court of appeals, which said the obama care is fine, they upheld the law. so now you have potentially two cases. it would seem very likely then that the supreme court would take the case up this term. >> does it matter which case they take up? i mean, i guess it matters in the case of do you defend or do you go against the one decision or defend what are the court rulings. >> my guess is that the supreme court would take both of them and do what they call consolidating them. in other words, sort of roll them all up into one big ball and say let's look at both decisions here. now, by the way, we're assuming that the supreme court would take the case. let me just say -- >> why wouldn't they? >> there are other cases pending. there's one in washington in the federal circuit. there's sort of a late to the party issue here, which is is the way to look at this say it's a tax and if p there is a tax, there's a federal law that says you can't challenge a law that would -- >> delay to
their policies have a devastating impact on real people across the country. in michigan, governor rick snyder signed the law that puts a four-year lifetime limit on welfare. that means next month, nearly 41,000 michigan residents will stop getting welfare aid including nearly 30,000 children. thousands of innocent impoverished kids, abandoned by the state. in arizona, a new republican law punishes the families of prison inmates. to help deal with the state's deficit, the state has begun charge is $25 to visit someone in prison. it's called a quote, background check fee. but actually goes for maintenance and repairs. and in wisconsin, governor scott walker's budget cuts means some kids are going without. one school district is so worried about losing state funding, that has stopped giving milk to elementary school kids during snack time. these are the real government of gop priorities. and the people paying for them are the ones who can least afford them. we're going to keep calling republicans out for this injustice and we would like your help in doing it. come to our facebook page. and like
was against roe versus wade. >> perry defended his performs at saginaw island, michigan where he was competing in that state's romneyesque straw poll. >> there may be slicker candidates and smoother debaters. i know what i believe in. i will stand on that belief every day. i will guide this country with a deep, deep rudder. >> mitt romney handily beat perry in his former state of michigan where his father was governor and romney grew up. beat perry by 34 points. they know if romney this is nominee, their state may be in play. there was a sympathetic play on perry's bad 96 hours came from somebody who had to deal with bad debate performances before with clients, that was mary madeline. what she said on abc. >> rick perry is not the best debater. he has to say, i may have the worst debate record but the best jobs record. if you're a president, you're called on to decide, not to debate. >> that is the message team perry is hoping they can get in the next few weeks but a sure sign a poor debate performance will be hard for perry to debate. it's already been spoofed in the season premier of "saturd
manufacturing jobs for a generation. we've been right there with michigan in how many manufacturing jobs we've lost. but what americans want is for jobs to be the top priority, to make the economy work and that means jobs for americans who want to work. >> let's talk a little bit about what's in the president's plan. we know closing loopholes is something he's talking about, raising taxes on the wealthiest, raising taxes on some hedge fund managers, as well. he has tried some of these ideas in the past with little to no success. what's difference this time around? >> well, it may not be different in that respect this time around. it may be republicans still refuse to bunch at all on anything that would increase taxes on the very richest americans. but the polls that you mentioned that shows americans are kapts c skeptical, what they're skeptical of is tax breaks do anything to help the economy. they can't see anything that's good that's come of it and they certainly don't think having more tax cuts for job creators really creates jobs. they think what does help, about if you want to improve
way to michigan yesterday, teamster present, jim hoffa, the son of jimmy hoffa rallied the detroit crowd. hoffa spoke of the president's job push and used tough language when talking about what he calls a war against the tea party. >> and you know what, everybody here has got a vote. if we go back and we keep the eye on the prize, let's take these son of a bitches out and give america back to america where we belong. >> the chairwoman of the tea party express demanded an immediate apology from hoffa. in a statement she said in part, jimmy hoffa's remarks are inexcu inexcusable. white house for its part said the president was not even there when those comments were made. the 2012 race, five of the republican party's presidential contenders traveled to south carolina yesterday to participate in a forum hosted by tea party power broker, senator jim demint of south carolina, mitt romney generally played it safe in front of the conservative crowd choosing not to criticize any of his opponents at this forum. form governor asked about his massachusetts health care law, saying it would be
